of the fiscal cliff. the fiscal cliff needs to be avoided. the speaker should bring the middle-class tax cut to the floor of the house for a vote. only has to do is let democrats vote and it will pass. the clock is ticking. there is still time for the speaker to avoid that cliff. the senate-passed bill would protect 90% of small businesses while president obama [inaudible] and that agreement should be comprehensive. simply pass the senate bill. the only reason he worked for a day or two so it would not pass. that did not work either. americans are not fooled by the speaker's thani procedural excuses -- phony procedural excuses. let me be very plain. there is nothing preventing the speaker from taking up our bill and giving middle-class families certainty. this is not a game. there will be very serious consequences for millions of families if congress fails to compromise. there will be serious consequences for our country if congress kills to compromise. -- fails to compromise. it is time for the house republicans to remember what is at stake. $250,000 program would pass overwhelmingly in the

, lawmakers are down to the wire on avoiding the fiscal cliff. will they get a deal done before the end of the year, president obama is on vacation and so is house speaker john boehner, but here's what they said before they left. >> call me a hopeless optimist, but i actually still think we can get it done. >> of course, hope springs eternal, and i know we have it in us to come together and to do the right thing. >> for more on all this i want to bring in nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker who is traveling with the president in hawaii. she joins us now from honolulu. hey, kristen. the president and the speaker are still sounding optimistic. is this wishful thinking? what exactly are you hearing in honolulu? >> well, i think that hopes for getting some type of grand bargain have all been but dashed. the most realistic thing right now is they can work out some sort of stop gap measure, a smaller deal. you heard president obama signal that on friday when he addressed the nation. he talked about the fact that members of congress right now should just focus on making sure that ta

said this, and i shall quote, president obama today gave another speech about the fiscal cliff, no plan, nothing that can be scored or analyzed, just another speech. if president obama wishes to avoid the fiscal cliff then he with all of the power and influence he holds as the leader of this nation must submit to congress in legislative form a plan that he believes can pass both chambers of congress with bipartisan support. no more secret meetings and pointless press conferences. your reaction to both of those? >> yes, i do agree with senator sessions. you know, back room deals, they never work out well. i do commend speaker boehner for allowing the house to work its will and to work by regular order. we have sent all of the bills that the senate needs to address this. the first one went over on may 10th which was reconciliation. august 1st was our tax extenders. the third was on our sequester. and then you finished in september with a path for tax reform. they are all on harry reid's desk. he can pick up whatever he wants. now for the president to think that just taking a break from th
